Gemma gets full run of the apartment, but it is very small. She has access to the kitchen, living room, and our bedroom. I keep the bathroom door closed so she doesn't go into the trash in there. I'm pretty sure she just sleeps on the couch until we come home.

Butterbean has full run of my small apartment. She was 4 and house-trained when I got her, so no problems there. She cries when I leave, but then sleeps on my bed or watches out her favorite window. When I come home, she's all waggly tail and kissy tongue. I flop down on the bed and let her do a "Daddy's home!" happy dance on my chest.

My two are free to roam the whole house. Wee wee pads are in the hallway and the girls use them all the time. Actually it is so cute to see them run from one side of the house to the other to make it to their wee wee pad. I did purchase "stay off mats" to put around my living room rug so they stay out of that area. I also have cozy beds in most of the rooms in the house so they can pick where they would like to snooze while I'm gone.

Ote stays in my bedroom. My brother would say "that's not Aly's room...that's Ote's room" because that's pretty much how it's set up. There are little pup beds everywhere, a step up to the bed, her bowls, and toys are out where she can get access to them as she wants. Most of the time, however, she is with me. I also have a little pop up playpen for her, but I haven't had to use it yet. I bought it with the intention to use it only when we are at family's house who have other larger, or rough-housing dogs (to keep Ote safe) and when we go on our cross country roadtrip (for use in the RV) in spring. Ote is potty trained and very, very rarely has accidents and she doesn't typically cry when I am gone. When I come home, she's usually sleeping under the comforter on my bed or playing with her toys.

Haha--I'll have to set up my computer camera when I leave for easy activation when I get home.

You must do that!

Rolo stays in his cage when we are out. I cant bring myself to let him roam about willy-nilly, I don't entirely trust him! He's a so-and-so for finding and chewing up the one thing you don't want him to find and chew up and I really don't know what Id come back to! My cousins kitten chewed through a speaker wire and electrocuted itself while she was at work and that story has stayed with me! He's more than happy in his cage, he has everything in there and never cries
